OK things are getting WILD! By that I'M talking about flooding and the rivers! This is not good for the rivers if you live by the rivers you need to be ready to move to higher land if needed. As I'M watching this line of storms move in we are picking up lightning and it is taking its time moving off to the east! This could be bad news for rivers as we could see some training rain. Looking at this line of rain / thundershowers we could easily see another inch and a half and in the areas that REALLY don't need it around Jasper county or Remington, they could see another two inches possible. They are already OVER three inches!!!!!
Here is a flood statement from the NWS below! I will check back!
